"Manevra" Önerisi | C4Defence





ABD’ye yeni kısa menzilli sistem önerisi geldi. İtalyan firması Leonardo ile ABD’de faaliyet gösteren kolu olan Leonardo DRS yeni bir öneride bulundu. İki firma, ABD Kara Kuvvetleri’ne Maneuver Kısa Menzilli Hava Savunma Sistemi’ni önerdi.

Stryker aracı üzerine entegre edilebilen sistem, Hellfire füzeleri ile Stinger füzelerini kullanabiliyor. Kısa menzilli hava savunma sistemi olan Maneuver konsepti, AUSA 2018’de tanıtılmıştı.

Maneuver’ın modüler ve yeniden yapılandırılabilir tasarımı, kullanıcılara geniş olanaklar sağlıyor. Sisteme, top gibi direkt atış gerektiren silahlar, sensörler ve füzeler, muharebe alanının gereksinimlerine göre gerekli silah paketi kolaylıkla takılabiliyor.
